Write a story given the following scenario: A person suffering from injuries but preferring to keep mum about it, thus causing great trouble to others
 
Siti was my best friend. Together with Li May, they were my classroom buddies. The end of November saw us brimming with excitement and relief Relief because we had just finished our SPM examination and excitement because we had planned and were about to embark on a trekking trip in Northern Thailand.

Siti had been to Thailand before. She always waxed lyrical about the fabulous hawker food there and the endless shopping bargains. We were planning to indulge in the food and to visit the famous Chiang Mai night market. But most of all, we were looking forward to trekking in Thailand's mountains and visiting the hill tribes there. All three of us loved the outdoors and had gone on expeditions in Malaysia. The night before the trip saw us packing. We especially took pains to arrange our camping gear and mountain equipment. As luck would have it, Sid got herself involved in a physical fracas that night. We did not know this until much later when the troubles were over.

She had gone down to the void deck of her block to escort her sister up to her flat. Her sister was on her way back from tuition. While Siti was there, she noticed a group of girls staring at her. When she bravely approached them to ask them what the matter was, they set upon her. She was punched in the chest. It was fortunate that she had fallen down and a male passer-by appeared just then. The girls fled from the scene. Siti managed to stand up with his aid. She seemed all right and made a quick check to see if there were bruises or cuts.

Somewhat shaken, she made her way back to her flat and her room. It was there that her sister found her crying when she came back from her tuition. Sin told her the matter and elicited a promise from her not to inform her parents or any of her friends. It was Siti's nature not to trouble and worry others. Hence, we embarked on our expedition with her, not knowing about the beating.

Soon, we were caught in the joys of our trip. The shopping done and the food savored, we embarked on our third objective - that of trekking Thailand's famous forested mountains. The morning air was fresh as we placed one energetic foot after the other up the slopes. Every interesting flower, plant or animal life was an occasion for stopping and to observe. Siti was our leader and led the way. However, halfway up the hill, we noticed her panting and visibly tired.

"What's wrong, Siti?" we asked. "Are you all right?" She replied in the affirmative but five minutes later, she stumbled and suddenly fell. We rushed towards her. She was pale but what horrified us was the dark blood that had covered her lips. We surmised that the blood came from internal injuries. Siti needed help quickly. But how were we to obtain medical assistance in such an isolated area? There was no other option but to bring her down the slopes to the nearest village. This we did, taking turns to give her a piggyback. It was a tortuous descent, in contrast to the earlier climb. In addition, hordes of pesky mosquitoes decided then to gorge themselves on our defenceless sweet Malaysian blood. At one stage, I stumbled and sprawled onto the ground, bringing the hapless Siti onto the ground with me.

Words cannot describe our relief when we finally bore down on the village and found medical help there. An assessment by the local doctor confirmed internal injuries brought about by a fight and subsequent fall. Through his kind help, we were able to summon a helicopter to ferry Sin to a hospital in Chiang Mai. Sin was in a state of unconsciousness as the craft took off into the air. We tried our best to reach Chiang Mai Hospital in a hired jeep quickly When we arrived, we learned that her condition was critical and she had to be operated on. Sin's parents were informed. We paced the wards, praying and hoping.

Siti survived the operation which was a success. Her parents arrived to learn of its success. Her condition improved steadily. Mr Ali and his wife thanked us profusely. We stayed in Chiang Mai until Sid was better. When she was conscious, she revealed her fight and injuries to her parents. Her parents scolded her for keeping it a secret and remarked that she had caused much trouble to us, her friends. However, we defended Sid by saying that it was typical of her selfless nature. We also made a vow to return to Chiang Mai with Sid to complete the unsuccessful climb up the hills.
